  • Work with engineering teams to improve data collection procedures to ensure integrity and quality of the data
  • Develop and validate new metrics
  • Present metric development, testing methodologies, and experimentation results to technical and non-technical partners, clearly and concisely

We’d like to hear from you if:

  • Expertise in statistical methods (including Bayesian statistics, time series)
  • Excellent application skills in experimentation methodologies (A/B, multi-armed bandit) and causal inferences
  • Experience with common data science toolkits, such as R/Python and libraries like pandas, scipy, stats models, scikit-learn, tidyverse (dplyr, ggplot2, etc.)
  • Proficiency in using query languages such as SQL and Hive.
  • Experience with Big Data systems and distributed computing, such as Hadoop and Spark
  • A self-directed individual, confident decision-maker, ability to work in ambiguous conditions, ability to break down complex problems
  • Strong product sense
  • A Ph.D. or MS in Statistics, Data Science, Mathematics, Economics, Sociology, Psychology, Natural Sciences, or any other equivalent quantitative field is helpful. If you are self-taught and believe you are an excellent fit for this role or have significant work experience, we would love to talk!
